Peach Harvest 2019

Hello everyone and God bless you all this fine Sunday!  Today was Peach Harvest 2019 here at the Callahan Organic Peach Farm!  I’m kidding of course, we don’t have an actual farm.  I just like to call it that.  It’s just one big peach tree (with a new little one growing next to it) in our backyard, but they are organic, Non-GMO, and pesticide free!  They make great smoothies too!  Thought I would share some photos with you along with a simple message from the Word regarding vines and branches.

There are different varieties of organic peaches that can be harvested from June through September.  We could have waited another week or so, but we picked our peaches today because a squirrel has been stealing them all summer.  We don’t want him taking all the good ones that are ripening.  He is cute and I left him alone all summer, but he has had his fill.  I named him Sneaky.

The poor tree has also been through several very bad hail storms.  I had to prune and cut off several damaged branches in the spring and it took a beating from the high winds and hail, but this year was the best harvest yet!  We would have had even more, but we had to throw away about forty of them and only the Lord knows how many Sneaky ate.  It will be great when the little peach tree is bigger and they both bear fruit at the same time.  Then it really will be like a little farm in the burbs!

It’s just like in our walk with the Jesus.  He is with us through the storms, caring for us and pruning us as He empowers us to bear fruit.  Jesus is the vine and we are the branches and we cannot bear fruit without Him.

“I am the true vine, and my Father is the gardener.  He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit, while every branch that does bear fruit he prunes so that it will be even more fruitful.  You are already clean because of the word I have spoken to you.  Remain in me, and I will remain in you.  No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine.  Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me.”

Jesus speaking in John 15:1-4

“I am the vine; you are the branches.  If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.”

John 15:5

“This is to my Father’s glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be my disciples.”

John 15:8

Remember, no matter where you are in your walk with Jesus, He will care for you and help you bear fruit.  Remain in Jesus and rest in Him.  Get in His Word, and spend time talking with Him in prayer.  No matter what storms may surround you, remain in Jesus and He will reap a harvest through you!

“Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.”

Galatians 6:9

What a bountiful harvest!  Thank You Jesus!  That is one big bowl of peaches!

Remain in Jesus and you will bear fruit in your life that is righteous and pleasing to God!  He will work in you and through you by the power of the Holy Spirit and you will become a fruitful branch for the Kingdom of Heaven!  May Your will be done Lord and may You bear fruit through us for Your glory!

Grace and peace to you all!

“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.  Against such things there is no law.”

Galatians 5:22-23

      1. Thanks! If I plant a couple more, we would have a little orchard.😊 Might do that. My wife always wanted a peach tree when she was a kid and she loves having them. 😊 It’s fun to pick them! God is good!🙌

  1. Wow, Ryan, the peaches are perfect, and pretty, too. Peaches are one of my favorite summer fruits and nothing taste better than home grown, so satisfying to be able to harvest in your own back yard! The storms took part of the tree, but that caused the tree to even bare more fruit, awesome how that works….God’s work and plan is so AMAZING! Enjoyed seeing you guys picking your peaches today, your pictures were great. God bless you all, Ry
    Love, Mom

  3. How awesome to have your own peach tree! We had one that the previous owners had planted but they had not taken care of it so it didn’t last long. For a few years the deer would come eat all the peaches. 🙂
